CAPTURE OF GARDINER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 April 1864

CAPTURE OF GARDINER. FROM THE ROCKHAMPTON CORRESPONDENT OF THE BRISBANE COURIER.) 10th MARCH.—Frank Gardiner is captured, and at     the present moment lies heavily ironed in the Rock- hampton lock-up. Rumors upon rumors have lately been in circulation to the effect that the notorious bushranger had been in this town, but all without foundation ; now, however, it is beyond doubt that he paid a visit to this lively locality, though at a       period long previous to that hinted at by any of the rumors. About nine months ago Mr Frank and his paramour, the almost equally notorious Mrs Brown, who absconded from her husband at the Lachlan, arrived overland in Rockhampton, under the as-   sumed names of Mr and Mrs Frank Christie. Their stay was very brief, and they left town, taking the route for the Peak Downs. After passing Yamba   the interesting pair fell in with a Mr Craig, who was &nbs...

THE POSTMAN IN THE PERN-TREE GULLIES-ROAD TO WOOD'S POINT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 April 1864

THE POSTMAN IN THE FERN-TREE     GULLIES—ROAD TO WOOD'S POINT.   One of the most lovely spots in Australian scenery — and it may be questioned whether there is   anything else to surpass it in the world — is the Fern Tree Gully. Gipps Land is peculiarly rich in these feathery forms, amongst the most graceful of nature's bounty in the beauty of vegetation. But Fern Tree Gully, as traced by the faithful pencil of Mr. Chevalier, will be, we will venture to say, much more agreeable from the contemplation of the easy arm chair than on horseback, half submerged   in making one's painful way through the tracks     from Melbourne to Gipps Land. The animated life of the picture represents the difficulties in the way of the transmission of her Majesty's mails, and home readers will have bowels of compassion if far off correspondents in Gipps Land are not quite up to the punctuality of the P. and O. born...

CAMPING FOR DINNER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 May 1864

CAMPING FOR DINNER. 'A'country like this, with a wide territory and a scattered population, given to sudden and migratory flights, beyond all roads better than bush-tracks, and where wild spots tenanted by the opossum and the kangaroo rise all at once into populous townships, society, till pro ductive 'powers are developed, stands in a great measure indebted to the carriers for the very necessarieS of life. A carrying party, on_ its journey in some' of theso; outlying dis tricts, often. assumoB some of the proportions of an Oriental caravan, and is always a plea sant, sight to see, with its animation and bustle, in the silence and solitude of Bush land.

FLINDERS' LANE— MESSRS: STEVEN-. ' SON AND SONS' STORE. '' , A noticeable feature in tlie 'changes that are ' ' '? ' coming over the.' business arrangements connected with the trade of Melbourne, is a recourse to the' economic principle of the division of labor. Formerly, and,- indeed, down to a very recent period, importers were general dealers in all the - products deemed pro fitable for introduction into Victoria. .: Now, however, our leading firms are finding it more to their profit to confine their business to specialties ; and as an evi dence of this,'and that their several specialties are thriving ones, we' may point to' the palatial structures, that are rearing; their fronts in 'our business thoroughfares. Amongst , the archi tectural improvements in trade, premises now in,prbgres's i in the' city, of .Melbourne, a fore most' place is due to the spacious, and, we might almost add, splendid, structure which Messrs Stevenson' and Sons, warehousemen and importers' of soft goods...

VIEW OF THE SHOTOVER AND LAKE WAKATTPU. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 May 1864

VIEW OF THE SHOTOVER AND LAKE WAKATIPU. ,The name of. Lake Wakatipu, which so often figures in the progress reports of the Otago gold-fields, must now bo almost as familiar as a household word, wherever the sound of gold stirs the human breast. Hardly, less -so : are 'Fox's,' 'Shbtover' and 'Arrow .diggings,' connected with the re ported discoveries of ? so many monstrous and mythical nuggets, and bona fide, if less sub stantial, 'finds.' We present a sketch of this auriferous region of New Zealand, which, it will bo seen, has picturesque *as well as golden attractions. The journey thither in volves, it must be confessed, a rather rough ride, if you are in the happy condition, indeed, to bo blessed with anything better than the nag of nature's own providing. The imme diate approach is by the long, narrow, and somewhat dreary valley of tho . Cardrona, bounded by high terraces and steep ranges on either hand, so that nothing is visible save the strath itself. The shallow stroom brawls...

' SHEPHERDING, ? IN AUS TKAIJA. Pastoral life looks vory pretty in the poetry of Theocritus, Virgil, and even of James Thomson, bat has nothing very imaginative in it except for those who have never, on Grampian height or Australian plain, Noryal like, fed their flocks — poor frugal swains. How pret tily has the artist pencilled this bit of Australian Arcady ; and all so really, too, could we only read the scrap of imagination left in the cranium of the gontle shep herd who softly reposes beneath the shade of that rugged gum troe. Of what doos he dream? Of the far off homo ? Or his Chloo, perchance ? Much more likely he is casting up accounts in dreamland how on earth, when he awakes to its uad unsocial realities, ho is to contrive, having smoked out all his tobacco, to get through ? the long, long, lonely day that in tervenes between the fall of Dame , Night's curtain, the balmy bliss of his couch and forgetfulness.

BRIDGE OVER THE GOULBURN RIVER SEYMOUR.—SEE PAGE 18. BRIDGE OVER THE GOULBURN RIVER, SEYMOUR. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 May 1864

BRIDGE OVER TE!e GOULBURN RIVER, SEYMOUR - sri! woe IS, BEIDGE OVER THE GOULBUBN KIVEB, SEYMOUR. : The new bridge over the River Goulburn, at Seymour , is an interesting illustration of our progress in opening up and perfecting the communications of the country. The first crossing at this point, connecting the eastern .and western districts of Victoria, was, in the first .instance, accomplished by an old box dray. As a step in advance, a venerable punt was constructed fourand twenty years ago, which was soon found incapable of crossing heavy waggons. About the end of 1860, the punt sank, and so remained for sixweeks, stopping all traffic, to the great inconvenience of the inhabitants . on tho north-east side ' of the river. In the beginning; of- 1861, Mr Hanna, of Melbourne, ; became lessee of the Goulburn punts ; and, seeing the dangers at tendant on this mode of crossing, and that more than tho, receipts were swallowed up in keeping tho punts in repair, he made on offer to Governm...
